Main station features
Strategically located to the north of the existing Parramatta Station, the new metro station will be within the commercial core of the Parramatta CBD, taking pressure off the existing station and giving customers a second rail option.
Parramatta metro station will support Parramatta CBD as a major employment growth centre, boosting jobs and improving connections across Greater Sydney. It will provide easy, efficient and accessible interchange with buses and Parramatta Light Rail. The new metro station will integrate with the proposed Civic Link, a green, pedestrianised public space from Parramatta Square in the south to Parramatta River in the north.
Parramatta metro station will be on the block bounded by George, Macquarie, Church and Smith streets.
Access and entry
One station entrance will be on Horwood Place and a second station entrance location is yet to be determined.
